And A Forest Grew Update

I finished up Part 5 of And A Forest Grew and began Part 6 tonight while I watched a whole series of episodes of Lost on the DVR to catch me up on that series. I think I will dream of being trapped on an island tonight - LOL!
Earlier today, I put some decent time in on Rachael's Neighborhood Round Robin - I finished up the lighthouse and the keeper's house, except for the backstitching. Now I need to start thinking about how I want to landscape my area and fill in all this open space. I know Rachael wants a beeskep, so I can start from there.
I didn't get around to stitching my Christmas Ornament for the SAL today, as I really wanted to work on Rachael's RR. I put aside the one I had ready to go for this weekend, as it is too detailed to get done in one day. But, I did pull another chart off of my list that I believe I can stitch up tomorrow during the NASCAR race ;-)
Stitched on today: Rachael's Neighborhood Round Robin, and And A Forest Grew

Wow, Carol, great stitching! How on earth do you manage to do so much in one day??? You have to share your secrets!!

Jenn said...

Nothing like a good Lost marathon to keep you stitching all day/night! Both of your pieces look great. Any ideas for the lighthouse? Maybe a grassy area leading down to the water?

Forest just keeps growing, that one with all the different motifs to do is so interesting.

Your RR project is looking good too, it will be fun to see how you fill in the surrounding area.

Your Forest is looking great, you're so fast! The RR is impressive too, I couldn't just make something up like that! BTW the LD sampler is Bristol Fashion :)

Hi Carol, all your recent stitching is great! Love the two gifts you stitched - the recipients would have been thrilled. Keep up the turbo needles, lol.

I think watching the dvds of Lost, or any other program like it, is the way to go - no torment in waiting for the next episode. :D
